Transcendence with Nightwood New York
May 9, 2014 - May 11, 2014| Free
TRUNK is happy to have Nightwood back in the store for a “Transcendence” exhibit during Brooklyn Designs. The creative duo consists of Nadia Yaron and Ry Scruggs. Together, they create original furniture using a combination of new and reclaimed wood with handmade textile details inspired from old things, primitive practices and creative reuse.
For this exhibition at Trunk, Nightwood has pieced together fragments of Art Deco, occult, geo-future and their signature rustic Nightwood aesthetic which transcends space and time. Getting dressed and grooming ourselves is something we do everyday. These rituals ground us in the physical plane and reinforce our believed realities of who we are. This installation suggests transcending the physical plane we live in on a daily basis to another plane or space where the deeply rooted reality we know to be true no longer exists.
